What are the costs and benefits of building a new airport in Berlin? Do Bangladeshi farmers benefit more from direct financial support or price guarantees? How many cars will need parking space in Copenhagen in 2020? How can CO2 quotas be priced and distributed efficiently? What pipelines need to be built in order to secure the EU’s future gas supply?

These and many other challenges situated at the intersection of economics and management form the basis of the MSc in International Economic Consulting. The increasing complexity of international relations has led to a steadily growing demand for international economic consulting services. Large multinational corporations, regional and national policy-makers, international organisations like the World Bank, the EU, and the OECD, as well as a growing number of non-profit interest groups require sound economic analyses and feasibility studies for a wide range of issues. 

Career Opportunities  

    The MSc in International Economic Consulting was developed in close cooperation with major players in the industry. As a consequence, its graduates are prepared for a range of job functions within the field. Past graduates have found jobs as consultants in domestic and international consulting companies, but also as economic advisers in private firms, international organisations, or non-profit organisations, and as analysts in regional or national governments.
